DIY Recycled Snowman Lanterns


Good morning!
Today I wanted to share with you a really quick and fun project I made with my daughter this weekend! So fun and all done with supplies I had around the house...

Here's what you will need:
Glass jars
white glue or modge podge
paint or foam brush
coarse and fine salt
tooth pick (for nose)
felt or fabric
hot glue gun 
buttons

So here they are... aren't they adorable!?!


Here is a picture collage of how we did it...


The Nescafe jars were the perfect shape for these snowmen, but any shape would work.


Throw in a battery operated tea light and voila, it was that simple! Make one, make two or make a whole family! Just have fun :)

Happy crafting!
